I have a Sony DVD-ROM and a Lite-on SOHW-812S DVDRW in my computer, and both have been working without a hitch for the last couple months. However XP is now not recognizing these drives (They dont show up in My Computer), and when checking in my device manager, it states that “Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)”.
This happened immediately after installing Roxio’s Easy CD Creator 5 Platinum. I noticed during the install some ASPI drivers were installed and Im guessing that this is the root of the problem. Somehow the drivers that were installed along with Roxio conflicted with both of my DVD drive drivers. So now I’m stuck in a rut and unable to use either of my drives. I’ve tried downloading the most recent ASPI drivers but that doesnt seem to work. I’ve also checked my bios and both my drives are indeed recognized, so it must be a driver problem.
I’ve tried a number of different things, like uninstalling and letting xp reinstall the hardware, to no avail.
Any help is appreciated, Thanks.
